NCRP has convened a select number of expert philanthropic consultants to begin using Power Moves in their own practices with funders, and an intimate group of grantmaking institutions of all types and sizes that have committed to using Power Moves in the next year.
Through these two learning groups, NCRP will support use of the toolkit, facilitate knowledge sharing, invite insights and feedback on how to improve our tools and resources, and offer opportunities for deeper engagement and sector leadership with NCRP and our network.
Many of these consultants and grantmakers will be featured on our blog and in this year’s Power Moves webinar series! The first two webinars took place in May and July, with two more coming up in September and November. If you are interested in participating in future Power Moves groups, contact us to learn more about how we can support your power journey.
